and now you know the news for this monday, november the 12th, 2012. to our veterans, thank you for your service to our nation. we're back tomorrow for "studio b," noon pacific, 3:00 eastern, and back here for "the fox report" tomorrow night. right before mr. bill o'reilly. >> bill: the factor is on. tonight? >> we received no advanced notice. it was like a lightning bolt. >> bill: senators on the intelligence committee had no idea the fbi had discovered cia director petraeus in a compromising position. also, the situation was kept under wraps until after the election. we will have a full report about what this means for you. is the best country in the world. i liked it the way it was. it's not going to be that way anymore. >> bill: is dennis miller correct. is america finished as traditional country? i will give you some data so
8:01 pm
you can decide. also tonight, bernie goldberg, adam corolla. juan williams and mary katharineham. caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. happy veterans day to all of how have served your country you are patriots. we have a power packed program four tonight. talking points memo will be in next segment. dennis miller thought that traditional america is gone forever is that true? i have interesting things to tell you. top story tonight, cia director david petraeus forced to resign over extramarital affair. this is an awful situation that the fbi knew about months ago but kept under wraps until after the presidential vote. not even senators on the intelligence committee knew what was going on. >> we received no advanced
8:02 pm
notice. it was like a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursday night, friday morning, the staff director told me there were a knupp number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus as a matter of fact i had an appointment with him at 3:00 that afternoon and that was cancelled. >> bill: so what does the story mean for you as an american citizen. with us is ravel -- ralph peters. what's the most important part of the story. >> the most important part is that it appears that the white house is lying again just as it was lying about benghazi. the key here, the important detail is the time line. who knew what, when? well, now it's emerged that contrary to denials, attorney general holder did know months ago about the investigation.
8:03 pm
it's -- to believe that eric holder did not tell his good friend, the president, that there could be a breaking sex scandal with the cia director in campaign season. >> bill: let me stop there. you make a pretty explosive charge at the top that the white house is lying. from what i understand the fbi does not comment publicly that's hot agency is on this case on anything until they have reached conclusions. they don't say for example, i'm investigating o'reilly for tax fraud or whatever it may be. until they have reached the indictment stage where they have enough to present. what's the white house lying about? >> well, i think the white house is lying about the -- the idea this the president didn't know until clapper and petraeus tell him, i mean, that is just -- you can't believe that you can't believe the attorney general wouldn't warn his friend, the president. >> bill: i'm not defending
8:04 pm
president obama because i really don't know what his -- he is having a press conference by the way on wednesday. obviously this is going to be huge. i hope libya is, too. i'm not sure that they are lying about anything at this juncture. maybe they are. >> let me lay it out for you. >> bill: go ahead. >> okay. now, this was beautifully engineered because they are very good political operatives to make sure the president was unstained by all of this. that he could say oh, i didn't know anything but gee, dave, thanks for your service to the country, bye-bye. what they do is even though we know eric holder knew, the attorney general, he did not tell the one man who needed to be told. >> bill: nobody believes he didn't tell him. >> no. i'm talking about jim clapper. i'm talking about clapper now. he didn't tell the director of national intelligence about this, petraeus' boss, even though he is the guy who needed to negotiation why didn't they tell clapper? >> bill: i don't know. >> clapper has got a lot of rec tuesday thrsm he knows he has to keep the intelligence
8:05 pm
system clean. he would have, during the campaign. insisted that petraeus go immediately. that would have been at least a distracter during the campaign. the republicans are going to say get rid of petraeus. a national hero. >> bill: if i'm the president, what i would do, as soon as i learned that my cia chief is under investigation for compromise situation, and it's not just the affair, it's the computer was used by people, and stuff was here and there. i basically have him take a leave of absence. i get him out of there. even while the investigation is underway. that's what i do as president. i think that's what you would do, too. as soon as you learn about, hey there is something. >> no. i would fire him immediately. >> bill: without proof? without knowing what he did or didn't do? i don't think that would be fair. >> once he had the emails. >> bill: right, once they had evidence yard, then certainly, so what you are basically saying is that they kept this thing buried until after the election, fearing that any revelation might hurt the president. that's what your accusations are. >> yes. and at least be a distraction.
8:06 pm
answer then how cynical to tell it the director of national intelligence, james clapper about it late on election day. and it's just -- it was just beautifully orchestrated. he tells petraeus. petraeus resign or you go. >> bill: not handled properly. >> it's not. it's handled cynically. >> bill: cynically, all right. >> cynically. petraeus, i'm sure at this point he doesn't know what hit him. let me be clear about petraeus. i'm not setting myself up as a pharisee, been there, done that made the alimony payments. what i'm saying is that when you are head of the krier. whether you have set yourself up as a paragon of virtue. enforce general order number one ruthlessly in afghanistan and iraq, well, hey then, if you are the guy that suckers for paula broadwell. the smart guys don't return the calls. if you sucker for that you are not fit to be head of the cia. thank you four your service but you are not fit.
8:07 pm
>> bill: says that petraeus, as able as he is, should have stayed there. you can't do that but whats can it mean for the folks watching at home. cia director, by all accounts the man knows what he is doing and effective antiwar. dwight eisenhower was having affair when he was demanding the armies during world war ii. jfk i don't know how the guy stood up. and you had clinton and all of this stuff. >> cia director is a very special post. what it means for the people at home is, one, in my analysis, the white house is lying to the american people yet again the white house has been ducking benghazi. that's part of this. i think they were getting cold feet about petraeus testifying underoath what he might say that he might not hugh to the party line and it was all about the video because clearly he knew better. they are worried about
8:08 pm
petraeus on the benghazi hearings on the hill this week. plus petraeus is seen as potential presidential or vice presidential candidate in coming years. so they just nailed this guy and now the leaked sexy emails are driving the nails in the coffin. everybody stinks n one. >> bill: dennis miller says traditional america is gone. vapor rised by the presidential vote. is that true in the talking points memo is next. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder
8:09 pm
does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd spiriva helps me breathe better. (blowing sou) ask your doctor about spiriva.
8:10 pm
8:11 pm
>> bill: is traditional america gone for good? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. emotions still running high after last week's presidential vote. many who supported mitt romney feel somewhat betrayed and there is anger as well as sadness in the air. my pal dennis miller believes traditional america has been vaporized that it is gone for good. >> do i think i will ever see it it go back in my lifetime
8:12 pm
to the other way? no, i don't. i think this is it. do i think it's the america that i saw from 18 to 58? no, i don't. is that the end of the world? no. it's not like i was in the shower this morning and found a lump in my armpit. that's always my fall back position. i have got a great life. but i'm just saying it is not the mercury have grown comfortable with. >> bill: now, i have given miller's election take a lot of thought. and i disagree with him. i believe traditional america can come back but it will take a very special person to make that happen. let's look at what happened six days ago. president obama received about 62 million votes. 11% less than he got in 2008. so he is slipping in popularity. mitt romney ended up with 3.3 million view votes than the president, close but romney got 2.3% less than mccain garner, mccain was running right into a recession. so it's more about romney's
8:13 pm
failure to build on mccain's vote than obama doing anything. a stronger candidate would have defeated the president. mr. obama won the woman vote, blacks and asians. but it was the hispanic vote that really nailed romney. 71% of latinos voted for the president. that was the difference in florida, virginia, colorado, and nevada. other states were impacted as well. romney took white males and independents by significant margins. but when you bunch it all up together, when you bunch it up, it was an entitlement vote this year. american families earning less than $30,000 a year broke big for the president. 62% to 35%. so it's clear that left wing ideology did not win the day for barack obama, big spending on federal programs did. that's the key. because many in the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election. it was not. however, however, secularism is certainly eroding
8:14 pm
traditional power. no question about it. once a week voted for romney 59, 39, the problem is church going is on the decline in this country. here is is an example. despite the president's incense tense that provide birth control and after pills. catholics supported obama 50% to 48%. down some. illinois now only 38% attend weekly mass. can you see the impact of creeping secularism on the religious vote. on paper, the stats look hopeless for traditional americans. but they can be reversed. however u it will take a very special politician to do that. by the way, mitt romney didn't even try to marginalize secularism. he ignored it it a mistake because president obama is the poster guy for the secular progressive movement. the key question going forward is the sp. movement good for
8:15 pm
americans no matter what their ethnicity or nic condition in the answer is no. three vivid examples. secular progressives champion a do your own thing philosophy. no judgments about personal behavior are allowed in that rebound. the public school system has adopted that philosophy. and that's now wreaking havoc on american society. in 2010, about 41% of american babies were born out of web lock. up 8 percentage points since 2000. and up an astounding 23% since 1980. babies born to unmarried women drive poverty every suddeny study shows that american minority groups are the most affected. in 2000 10, 73% of black babies were born outside of marriage. 53 of hispanic babies were. the number was 29% for white babies. so the cycle continues. minorities are more affected by poverty because the traditional family unit has broken down in those
8:16 pm
precincts. and rather than trying to reverse that, secular progressives want more entitlement spending. nothing about changing libertine attitudes. on the abortion front, same thing. rather than trying to discourage taking the lives of millions of fetuses, the s.p.s have created a mythical war on women. screaming that so-called reproductive rights are under assault. the abortion zealots want the procedure on demand. no matter how late term. are stridently opposed to even counseling before this life-ending procedure is undertaken. abortion is settled law in the u.s.a. but it should be discouraged because human d.n.a. is present upon conception. thus, the situation becomes a human rights issue. ask yourself this question. should america be a country where potential human life, an
8:17 pm
undeniable fact after conception is terminated for convenience, for convenience? is that the kind of country we want? >> and the federal government is going to demand that citizens who oppose abortion pay for it? what say you planned parenthood? finally, two states washington and colorado voted to legalize pot, grim stats on this i had gross. since 2008, teenage pot use up 440%. teenage pots for teens up 80%. states that have lenient medical marijuana laws driving those stats. why? because legalizing pot sends a message that it's fine to use it getting the are you going at the corner pot shop makes it readily available to anyone. ask any drug counselor. and he or she will tell you once a child is introduced to intoxicants that child's life changes for the worse. some may not become substance-involved but millions will. do we want to encourage that?
8:18 pm
the s.p.'s don't care about addiction. they don't want limitations on so-called private behavior. no judgments. want to smoke drugs? fine. want to abort a fetus? we will drive you to the clinic. want to have a kid when you are 16, no problem at all, we will will stuart support you. if mitt romney spelled that out what the secular progressive movement is really all about in strong vivid termination and how president obama nanels that, romney would not have lost 71% of the hispanic vote. i can tell you. i believe the majority of americans can be persuaded that the far left is a dangerous outfit. bent on destroying traditional america and replacing it with a social free fire zone that drives dependency and poverty. we the people need to be confronted with the reality of our situation. but so many of our politicians are cowardly that the truth is rarely heard.
8:19 pm
well, tonight you heard it. and maybe four years from now, what's really at stake in america will finally be heard loud and clear. and that's the memo. next on the run down, juan and mary katharine will react and the factor will be right back.

8:22 pm
>> secular progressive politics are nation and folks will wise up eventually. joining us from texas mary katharine ham. and juan williams both are fox news analysts. am i right here? wrong here? where am i? >> you are a little off talk on this one. >> bill: a little off talk? >> some of the things i resonate with. here is the thing. there are lots of older americans right now who says this is not the mercury grew
8:23 pm
up in. i go to the gas station and nobody is speaking english. guy to the 7/11 and get angry and say america has changed. you can't demonize the new folks in america and make them out to be america's problems and say just because these folks didn't vote for romney. in fact, people said romney shares their values. this is across the board. but they said obama cares about people like me. >> bill: what i would say to you is i don't think 71% of hispanics are secular progressives, would you agree with that. >> no. that's what i was coming to you say next when you look at catholics, hispanics strongly catholics. these are patriots. they love america. they believe in hard work. >> bill: romney couldn't put it in vivid terms so they would respond to that. >> what he put in vivid terms. i don't like you. you guys get out of here. >> bill: the self-deport thing is what did it. mary katharine, you say? >> i think you are on target on a bunch of those. we have reached a turning point of sorts.
8:24 pm
that doesn't mean that folks who believe what romney believes or believes in general to the right of center as juan was pointing out many people still do that that can't result in electoral victory in the future. i think you are correct that it takes a special person. i think took a special person in barack obama to bring the left to where it is right now. i'm frankly surprised it got here. and it will take somebody who really connects with people who is charismatic and smart and takes message to people in a smart way where you are not demonizing anybody and rye jecket the notion that i or bill or anyone else is doing that and explicit ways. i think you have to cross these cultural barriers and talk in a way that's smart and reach folks. that's is part of what was missing. >> talk in a way that challenges them. i mean, look, as you said, most hispanic americans are catholic. all right? they are family oriented. >> strongly. >> bill: tradition in hispanic precincts family, family, family. yet, they rejected all of that
8:25 pm
they rejected all of that. >> why do you think that? >> bill: because if you look at the democratic convention and you saw all the abortion zealots and all the zealot tri up there and the dependency and the big government programs you couldn't possibly say this is the pro-family party. the democrats. >> of course you could. you saw castro the mayor of san antonio there with his little girl his mother and his wife. >> bill: if you want to parade kids you can't beat romney he has 42 of them. [ laughter ] >> bill: i'm saying the message put forth by planned parenthood and nau and naral was antifamily message. >> that's not true. >> bill: abortion on demand for any reason at any time? they all do. >> nobody said that bill what they said is you shouldn't get into things like requiring invasive procedures before a woman is allowed to have an abortion. >> bill: invasive? >> in this election? more than half of americans said abortion should be legal.
8:26 pm
and then let's come to something like marijuana, a minute ago you were saying oh you like -- what do you say about alcohol bill o'reilly? >> bill: i don't make those comparisons. >> bill, you don't even drink. >> bill: i don't make those comparisons because they are not constructive comparisons. >> yes they're. >> have you seen these frat boys out there having big bear. >> bill: do you know what word it is, word of the day? he is pettifogging the issue. introducing alcohol discussion that has nothing to do. >> bill: exactly what you did. petty fogged the issue by introducing alcohol when the stats are had 0% of teens are up in marijuana and 80% in heavy use. >> heavy what? >> bill: heavy marijuana use. ignore stats by introducing another topic. we as american have legalize thed. need a drink. >> we legalized alcohol. kids drink alcohol. >> bill: you and calvin coolidge back to 1930. what you did was pettifogging.
8:27 pm
you avoided the fact by introducing something else to talk about. mary katharine? all right. you have had yours. >> my drink. >> let me take us back to the family stuff real quickly. first of all, conservatives need to understand this is something that i have talked about for a while that we can't wait four people to get married to become conservative. we can't wait for people because they are church goers to be conservative. it takes a little bit more convincing than it used to because people's lifestyles used to drive them toward this philosophy. we have to do more convincing. that's why it takes some here is the other thing i think you are right, bill, so many unintended consequences of this corrupt federal government to solve every problem that often you end up with, what, single motherhood and parenthood driving 40% of income inequality which is not the result that the left wants but it's what it ends up with. try to solve that with more subsidies. not a healthy way and smart way to solve that be prosecute. conservatives have a different method where you can take
8:28 pm
things to the state where even in states pot policy i may differ with you on can become experimental democracy. different solutions. people keep voting. you have none of those opportunities and you lose the opportunity to help people. >> bill: go. >> so i wanted to say to you and mary katharine that you can't say to these people like you are cranky and you are angry over the election results. you guys are a bunch of lay aabouts, you are having children out of wedlock. >> who said that. >> smoking pot. >> that's not the way. >> people share values, a family and love of country. and you have to treat them with respect, bill o'reilly. >> bill: from what i took away from juan is you can be stoned and still love your country. >> that is actually true. >> bill: adam corolla outraged over the election of elizabeth warren to the senate. why does carolla care? westerny goldberg on thoughts on the petraeus scandal. that should be interesting. hope you stay tuned to those reports.

>> bill: unresolved problem seeing want tonight. on electric night i said this about many voters who supported president obama. >> it's a changing country. the demographics are changing. it's not a traditional america anymore. and there are 50% of the voting public who want stuff. they want things. and who is going to give them things? president obama. he knows it and he ran on it. >> bill: well, just today my theory backed up by the government statistical bureau according to the feds from july to august of this year, latest at that data available. more than 400,000 americans put on food stamp roles in one month. brings the total to astounding 47 million people getting assistance all-time record. joining us from los angeles defense attorney who analyzes politics and here in the studio michelle fields political commentator. both are single ladies. that group overwhelmingly supported president obama. why is that by the way before
8:33 pm
we get to this discussions. why did the single ladies go for him? >> look, i think mitt romney was a weak candidate to begin with. >> bill: why do you say that? >> he wouldn't connect with voters with a way a lot of voters you voted for him. >> i voted for mitt romney, yes i did. a lot of women are generally on welfare programs as well. president obama, you know, has had this huge a lot of welfare spending. it's hard to get off the candy. obama is the one giving you the candy you don't want it vote for the person who is not. >> bill: i don't think it's fair to say wing sell women on welfare. working. do you think this war on women they bought that. did you buy that war on women thing? >> i don't like that war on women it implies that women are victims. that is such an overly simplest sticks analysis of why obama got the women's
8:34 pm
vote. obama got the vote. >> bill: tell me why he did. go. >> because obama supports issues that matter to single women, period. he cares about issues that matter to single women. he cares about abortion. >> bill: like what. >> women's healthcare. >> bill: wait, wait, wait. when you say obama, president obama cares about abortion. what does that mean? that he cares about having a lot of abortions? making abortions easier? what does he care about? >> he supports not putting restrictions on a woman's right to choose. >> bill: so he supports in your mind and you are a single woman, the president supports unfettered abortion. you don't want any circumstance, any time, any place, we will take you to the clinic and pay for it and that's why you like him. >> it's not about unfettered abortion, bill and you know that. >> bill: i don't know that. >> it's about a woman's right to choose. >> bill: you have the right to choose and you can get an abortion. all that's in play is are there any going to be any restrictions. counseling? are you going to have to look at a sonogram. >> restrictions like what?
8:35 pm
like requiring women to undergo transvaginal ultrasounds? >> bill: here is fetus 8 months that you don't put a drill in its head. that's a restriction. these unbelievable food stamp statistics, 47 million americans, all right? why is that happening? it's not the recession? i mean, you know, maybe half of it is. >> yeah. >> bill: what's happening. >> obama bought this election through welfare spending. look, if you look at the numbers, we are spending so much money on welfare and federal spending has increased for welfare by 32%.
8:36 pm
this is supposed to get people on their feet. >> bill: you agree with knee that was a very very strong magnet. >> this is a way of life. >> bill: do you agree with that? >> i agree that that's one factor. but that's an oversimplyification of what happened. bill, it does not take a rocket scientist to see that you don't get the vote of people that you insult and the people that you don't support issues that are important to them. that's what happened in this election. >> bill: food stamp issue is an exploding entitlement. 400,000 from july to august. and the unemployment rate was actually going down in the process there. i mean, what's going on? >> we're in a bad economy. we're in a bad economy. no one is going to dispute that. >> bill: it's bad but it's not. you know, nothing that would warrant this kind of a -- 47 million people? what's going on? >> people need help, bill. people clearly need help. yes, obama could have done better with the economy. that's what happens in situations like this. but i don't think think that's
8:37 pm
the deciding factor why single women voted for obama. >> bill: you are right. it could be abortion. bernie goldberg on the david petraeus story and how it's being covered. then adam corolla outraged by the election of elizabeth warren to the senate but why? adam carolla straight ahead. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteoporosis and some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking advair.

thanks for staying with us. weekends with bernie segment. bring in the purveyor of bernard goldberg got come. this petraeus thing pretty stunning, is it not. >> bill, my first reaction is i don't want to know about this. this is none of my business. this is a private matter. then i figured, of course, he has access to top secrets so it's an important story. then i thought somebody ought to tell that to bill clinton, right? because he also had aches is to top secrets and was fooling around with someone who wasn't his wife.
8:41 pm
if there is good news that comes out of this petraeus matter is that now that sex is involved. mainstream media will show a little interest in benghazi. >> so you believe that the media has covered this fairly so far, the petraeus thing? three days ago it broke? two days ago? all over the place. can't ignore it, obviously. >> no, you can't ignore it it's a story. and, you know, i'm not concerned -- i'm not interested in it except if it pertains at all to policy such as benghazi. i'm thinking, as i say, now that petraeus -- involved with sex. >> bill: your theory is we live in the united states of entertainment and now that sex has been injected they have to cover it? >> exactly. >> bill: what about peters at the top of the program being outraged by the time line saying you know what? here is another example of the obama administration knew it was going on, they buried it until after the election and
8:42 pm
going on and on and on and on. does that matter? >> well, i don't know if it's true. if it's true i guess it does. they have managed to bury the benghazi story. the media has said since romney didn't bring it up, they didn't feel any obligation to bring it up. if they put that past the election and they put this petraeus thing past the election. this second term is going to be pretty ugly people not going to go away. >> it won't be the bad guys some indication that his whatever you want to call her, his friend may have made a speech and given away some secret information that she may or may not have gotten. >> bill: only thing that could happen is if holder gets dragged into this because he may because he obviously overseas the fbi and he knew what was going on and if he
8:43 pm
see that he bury it and got fast and furious on his resume. >> you can bury certain things for only a certain amount of time. and second terms are not kind to second term presidents. i think coupled with the stagnant economy and benghazi and whatever comes out of this petraeus thing. you know, barack obama won the election but he may have also lost the election. >> bill: we have a press conference on wednesday. so it will be interesting to see how aggressive the media is. this is the first press conference the president has held since he graduated from harvard law school because he hasn't had a lot of those. now, you heard my talking points memo which is quite extensive and painted, i think, a fairly vivid picture of where we are in america socially. and you say? can i answer it, bill, in a political sense? >> >> bill: sure. >> if people agree with you they will vote one way. if they don't agree with you it's going to affect their vote. first of all, i think dennis
8:44 pm
miller made a lot of sense. that's number one. right? i'm not saying you didn't but i agree more with dennis miller. >> bill: that's it's not coming back. traditional america as we my it is gone? ward, june? wally and the beav out of here? >> yeah, pretty much. let's look at it this way from a political point of view. we keep hearing that america is a center-right country, right? finance it's a center-right country how did barack obama win two elections? i'm not sure it's a center-right country. that's number one. number two, we keep hearing that republicans have a problem with black voters and latinos and women and young people. look, far and away the biggest problem for republicans is with republicans far and away. two days after the election listening to rush limbaugh on the radio calls himself as traditional family values conservative. i know what that means right from the jump. and he says i will never -- these are his words. i will never vote for a

moderate republic and he didn't vote for romney. he sat home and then for good measure, he says, that if any republic says i'm going to reach across the aisle, i will not vote for him. purists like that will sink the republic party. what percentage would you put on that kind of a presentation? how many republicans are in that category? voted for mccain. i don't know how many of these agree with guy. i bet you it's a million or so. if they nominate somebody that he likes. and this gets back to the talking points, some hard line social conservative you have to be able to persuade people in the middle that your vision for the country is good for them. and that's what i was saying. i think the hispanic precincts can be won over. you just have to say, look, it's not good for you.
8:46 pm
this isn't good for you. >> it takes a certain kind of republic. it takes a kind of conservative barack obama and i mean that in the best sense for conservatives. and, you know what? republic messiahs don't come along that often. i don't think things look good for republics unless they find that magic candidate. bernie goldberg, everybody. adam corolla on deck. is he lived with the election of elizabeth warren to the senate. why does carolla care about that? we'll find out in s just a few moments. your gift? uh... whew.

8:49 pm
>> back of the book segment tonight, rolling with carolla and the pod cast master joins us now from los angeles. so you want to shout at petraeus tonight? >> yes, i would.
8:50 pm
>> bill: go. >> first off, i don't mind a guy who cheats. that just means that he has testosterone. look at all the greats who have cheated. mlk. jfk, rfk, all the greats have cheated. you know who didn't cheat, bill? jimmy carter. he didn't cheat on his wife. >> bill: calvin coolidge. >> yeah. the part -- the only part that makes me nervous is the guy is the director of the cia and he can't keep this liaison secret? that makes me nervous. >> bill: that's a good point there, carolla. talking about should be a little more stealthy. i have to correct you though. r.f.k. we could not find any marital marital stuff with him. all right. now, you live in los angeles. and elizabeth warren lives in massachusetts. very very far away from you. very far. yet, you adam carolla are outraged about this woman winning the election and
8:51 pm
becoming a senator from massachusetts. why? >> it was because of the speech she gave at the dnc where she told everybody the system was rigged against them. by the way look out coney robbins there is a new motivational speaking sheriff in town and her name is elizabeth warren. a horrible message to send to to people in this country. could you imagine a teacher or a coach or a counselor explaining to a student that the system was rigged against them? that would sap their motivation to improve themselves and fail what you are saying. you believe this was a corner stone of ms. warren's presentation? >> well, it's the corner stone of the democratic party and the plan is or the inference is we're gonna fix it. we're going to unrig it. but, what's obama been doing for four years? how come he has not unrigged
8:52 pm
the system? and then what about carter and what about clinton? did they unrig it and then reagan re-rigged it and then how does it work with the rigging and the unrigging and why can't you unrig it? >> bill: you know, elizabeth warren is a classic liberal, harvard person. i know those people because i had some association with them a few years ago. she believes that the american society is basically unjust. and she is a native american woman, you know that. >> sure. >> bill: she was able to rise up and overcome whatever prejudices are against native americans. so, i don't know why she didn't make that a corner stone like say, look what happened to me. i survived little big horn and here i am. and i'm going to be a senator and, you know, shows that our society is fluid that you can rise. certainly barack obama is the greatest example of that. >> well, it's a form of grandiosity. it's governor kasichly saying yes, i'm a woman. i'm three quarters ircoy. and my father was a janitor
8:53 pm
and i was born in the 30's. but you guys aren't me. you see, i'm smart. i'm gifted. i have been touched by god. i can overcome this kind of adversity. you are not capable of it. >> bill: so you believe that she, elizabeth warren, preached victimization, still won in massachusetts? >> absolutely. and i just think it's a horrible thing for any politician to talk about. even if it exists on some level, the message should be you're going to have to work twice as hard. >> bill: barack obama did it he did it that's what the message should be. you don't get more humble beginnings than he had. are you happy out there in los angeles that the president was reelected? is there a lot of partying going on out there? >> yes. >> bill: yeah? joy? >> we had to interrupt the parting. we always do to do more partying over here. yes, they are smart.
8:54 pm
they are happy. they are smug. they are partying about it. and, you know, i feel good about it, too. because i feel like, to use a boxing nalg, -- analogy. i feel obama has been working the body. softening up the body for four years and now the hay maker is coming. >> bill: he is going to do something interesting with this last four years. i don't know about that. >> no, no, i'm just kidding. >> bill: that -- sitting there. adam carolla, everybody, there he is. factor tip of the day today. nice place to hide out. the tip 60 seconds away. where others fail, droid powers through.
